Nexus 9 reveal pegged for October 8th, set to feature a killer new processor

Nexus 9 Announcement Date

We haven’t seen a new Nexus device from Google so far in 2014, but according to Portugal-based tech blog 4GNews, HTC will reveal its Nexus 9 tablet at an upcoming media event on October 8th. This is the same media event that we reported on last week after receiving an invitation in our inbox with the title “Double Exposure.”

LAST WEEK: The Google Nexus 9 has just been confirmed, and you can thank Samsung for that

The invitation provided virtually no indication about what the event would focus on, but a reliable source speaking to 4GNews expects the premiere of the Nexus 9 with a waterproof, “tube-shaped” 16-megapixel camera, Bluetooth functionality, WiFi connectivity and the ability to control the tablet from an Android or iOS phone with a special app developed by HTC.

The source also confirms some specifications that had been previously leaked, including the tablet’s 3GB of RAM, 9-inch Full HD display, 16GB of internal memory, 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years and NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 mobile processor. The Nexus 9 might also be one of the first devices to ship with Android L on board.

Whatever HTC brings to the Double Exposure event next month, we’ll be on the scene to see what the company has in store for the last quarter of 2014.
